Best Friend

Oh what a lovely day we had here!  A high of 79 degrees and sunny!
You can't ask for better than that in the South in June!

I have a card for my stash for the animal rescue with which I volunteer.  I like to send cards to kids that do special things for us in lieu of our standard donation thank you card (very adult).  We probably have an equal number of little boys and little girls that have events for us (birthday parties, lemonade stands, etc.).  This one will go to our next special little boy.  We have a senior citizen donor that gives monthly that I also send a special card to every other month or so with her tax receipt tucked inside.  Anyway, I like to have a stash so I can choose a card for the recipient!

I used a darling Greeting Farm image, OA Buddies, colored with Copics and Spicas, then fussy cut.  DP is Authentique Bundle Collection: Journey and cs is DCWV.  Rectangles are Spellbinders, and I cut a hole in the blue cs making it look like a Polaroid snapshot.  The bone and pawprint charms are MFT dies.  The sentiment tag is from Memory Box.  Ribbon and rhinestones come from my stash. I used the sketch from PaperTake Weekly.

I am also entering the following challenges:

Crafts 4 Eternity - 3 elements beginning with same letter (boy, blue, bone)
Here Come the Boys - Use ribbon
Paper Crafting Journey - masculine cards
The House That Stamps Built - Fin, Fur or Feathers
The Greeting Farm - Oh Boy

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Now I'm off to work on a card for tomorrow!
